Santiam Canyon School District election: introducing Position 1-Zone 1 candidates Gale Holfert, candidate

My Name is Gale Holfert. I am a candidate for School Board Position #1 Zone #1. I am a taxpayer and a homeowner and have lived in the Lyons/Mill City area since 2002. I am a retired educator. My wife and I are parents and grandparents who believe in quality school and education. Since retiring from 28 years of public education I have been a facilities volunteer in Corvallis High Schools for four years. I supervised college student-teachers at Oregon State and Western Oregon Universities. During the 2012 school year I was an assistant volunteer coach with the Santiam High School track team. It was a fun return to being with students again for me! Great kids! I realize I have a steep learning curve ahead if I am successful being elected as a School Board member. I believe I am a sincere listener and I am committed to doing my best for supporting our students, teachers, principals and

superintendent. Some of my priorities are: *Trying to foster a positive learning environment in our schools. *Encourage strong support and communication between teachers, students and parents. *Seek creative sources of funding. *Do My best to contribute to a positive rapport with the community. My Personal Work History: *Worked summers during college years as a logger and commercial fisherman. *Earned Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and 16 years as an Elementary and Middle School teacher. *Earned Masters degree in Elementary Education and Administration and 10 years as an elementary school principal in Alaska. *Commercial crab and salmon fisherman summers in Alaska. I will do my best to be a contributing team member if elected. I will appreciate your vote! (cont’d on page 3)

Yvonne Hanna, candidate

As candidate for Santiam Canyon School Board Zone 1 Position 1, my goal is to work hard and constructively to improve the image of our local schools. A collaborative effort must be made to improve the state of our schools and the state of our community. The impact we have in our student’s lives today will directly impact the future of the Canyon. These past few years have been difficult for our schools. If elected I plan to collaborate with board members, staff and community on a workable strategic plan. A solid focused vision is needed to leverage the resources we do have. In these tough economic times and the cuts we’ve already endured, we need to seek the most effective use of our tax dollars. I have been actively involved in following the decisions of our local School Board by regularly attending meetings and helping to organize groups to discuss the future of our schools. This valuable experience motivated me to run for school board and help influence the policy decisions of the district. I’m a Santiam graduate. I’ve served in the U.S. Army. I received my B.S. in Business Administration from City University. I am an alumnus of the Ford Institute for Leadership. I’ve worked in administration, accounting and human resources. For the past 10 years I’ve been employed with the state and currently work as an Analyst. Past/Present volunteer activities with: Canyon Catalysts, GMCLAT, MC Budget Committee, MC Fire Dept Budget Committee, Girl Scouts, 4-H, MC Christian Church, Hearts to Arts. Finally, I am honored to be the mother of two children who attend our schools and deserve the best education we can offer. Please consider my experience and passion for our schools and our community as you place your vote for school

board this May.

Roberta Beldon, candidate

My name is Roberta Beldon, I am one of many that will be running for a position that is opening on the Santiam School Board. A little about me; I have lived in Mill City for the past twelve years, I am a member of the Mill City Baptist Church and I am the volunteer coordinator for the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). I have two children, which have attended school here. My son graduated last year from Santiam High and my daughter is in fourth grade. My main purpose is to be the voice for the students. These kids have to live with and deal with the decisions that we as adults make every day. The younger citizens of our community deserve the right to have their education be protected. My goal, if elected, is to work with the other members of this board along with the staff of each school to make sure that all the decisions being made have the children and our schools best interest. My mission is to bring our School District and our community together and move forward. We have so much to offer here we just need to figure out how to make it known. By working together we can make this happen. Our children have the right to an education and the right to know that they will get the education they need to be productive citizens. We need to work toward restoring the programs that have had to be eliminated and gain new ones that will benefit our district and our community. I will be the first to say that I am not a politician, nor will I become a politician, but, I am wholeheartedly promising to uphold the power of our education system for our present and future students.

Search for school Super continues

The Santiam Canyon School Board members and the superintendent hiring committee will be entering into a special executive session this Thursday and Friday evening to interview prospective superintendent candidates. An undisclosed number of applicants have entered into the interview process and are actively seeking the open position that will be left by Brian Gander, the current interim superintendent. According to the district calendar time has been allotted for possible second interviews that would prolong the process through April 25th and 26th. The plans are to choose a new Superintendent of Schools/Principal of Santiam Elementary by May 2, and will be officially announced at the school board meeting that evening. The meeting will be held at Santiam Elementary School commons and starts at 6:30.

Bill Sanderson’s River Report April 20, 2013 (503)897-3301

Steady river conditions have resulted in some good river trips recently and will allow for more as long as the weather cooperates, and that is a day to day thing this time of year. In the last two weeks, we have had Packsaddle flows of 1,140 up to 1,710 cubic feet per second.

Back by popular demand!

Mehama depth has been between 4.1 feet and 5.3 feet. Both fishing trips and scenic trips can work well with this volume. Water temperature is still somewhat cold and has been staying close to 50 degrees the last few days. Air temperature, snowmelt, and rainfall will all have an effect on daily conditions. Many salmon and steelhead are waiting in the lower Willamette and Columbia Rivers for the temperature to increase before the big runs of Spring fish come upstream into the Willamette and Santiam River systems. Since May, June, and July are the biggest months for fish passage, the best is yet to come. Steelheaders Salem Chapter meets this Tuesday night at Keizer Community Center at 7:00 p.m. and Grant McOmie is the speaker. Grant

will have his brand new book available so this program will be especially timely. North Santiam River Guides Association meets on April 24, Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at Neufeldt’s Diner in Aumsville. Upcoming Learn the River Trips will be discussed. The club members recently cleaned up trails at North Santiam State Park and had fishing demonstrations afterwards. Four big loads of debris were hauled off, and several downed trees and branches were removed. The park is now clear for hiking on the trails. The next “Learn the River� trip is scheduled for May 4 from Mehama to Stayton and boaters are invited to come along and follow our experienced leaders. If pre-arranged, there may be some open seats in a few of the boats for passengers.

Music in Bloom

Dress rehearsals are running smoothly for the Gates Fire Department fundraising concert “Music in Bloom”. The musical selections will be performed by the cast of 40. Behind the scenes, volunteers have been working hard on publicity, stage construction, set decorations, and refreshments. “Our efforts are aimed at bringing the community together for an evening of fun,” said Committee member Nancy Swanson. “We hope to raise enough money for a defibrillator for the conven-

ing space in the hall, but we also want our audience to feel at the end of the evening that they have not only helped the community, but have been entertained as well.” A planning committee with Elise Burks, Cara Kelly, Linda Scheidel, Nancy Swanson, Dave White and Alexis Winn have overseen all the behind the scene planning that creates a successful show. A beer and wine no-host bar will be held at 6:30pm prior to each show. In addition, a variety of hor d'oeuvres will

be available. The social hour will give people a chance to relax and socialize before the concert begins. Members of the fire department have volunteered their efforts in many ways, including constructing and painting the temporary stage. Jim Scheidel will be running the light board, and Mike Boniface will operate the sound system. The planning committee would like to thank the Gates Post Office, Kelly Lumber, and the Mill City Pharmacy for their help with ticket sales.
